RSP: What is your current occupation?
Kell: Consumer? I consume fashion like Chuck Norris consumes babies. Haha. I work at Free People right now, so I suppose I also sell it. I’m a hustler baby.
RSP: Which fashion designers or runway trends influence your overall look?
Kell: It’s hard to put my finger on just one, I’m scandalous when it comes to fashion I suppose. Chloe always seems to know what’s up…the same thing that’s been up for the last 60 years! Everything Chloe touches sings vintage, eclectic, antiquity. I also think music often shapes fashion, and I love music, so I’m sure you can decipher my feelings on fashion.
RSP: What is the biggest TREND or MUST- HAVE ITEM for summer?
Kell: Well if it wasn’t for my big toenail falling off I would have to say strappy flat sandals and wedges. So instead I’m gonna have to go with a Gidget bikini. The one piece halter kind that gathers at the sides and is like little shorts at the bottom. Juicy Couture is making a lovely one of that sort.
RSP: What is your most prized fashion possession?
Kell: My Kelly green Dolce & Gabanna Pea coat. Fo Sho!
RSP: What can we find in your closet? Please include specific items, accessories and brands.
Kell: Lots of skinny jeans…BDG, Dickies, Red Engine, William Rast, ect. Men’s T-shirts…many of which with the sleeves cut off. Not sure on brands, mostly band shirts. Jackets galore! Members Only, True Religion, Dolce & Gabanna, Tracey Reese, Vintage, Top Shop, etc. Shoes. Duh. Converse, Nike, Seychelles, Kors, L’Autre Chose, Report, blahblahblah.
RSP: In your opinion what is the biggest fashion faux pas???
Kell: Ummmmmm, caring too much I do declare! Matchy matchy is over-rated, as is regularly laundering your clothing. I like character...I like it when clothes look used. Rainbow sandals make me want to vomit. I don’t much care for stiletto heels either. Femininity is a bit out done as well. I like a more androgynous look.
RSP: Favorite color?
Kell: Green. Kelly Green. Yep.
RSP: Favorite place to shop?
Kell: Amvets and Top Shop.
RSP: Must have make-up?
Kell: Bella Donna loose powder. One word: AMAZING. Oh yeah, and cheap black eyeliner from CVS or Target.
RSP: How would you describe your look?
Kell: I’m all over the place. Edgy, vintage, eclectic, androgynous. That pretty much sums in up.
RSP: What’s on your i-pod right now?
Kell: The Modern Lovers. I heart Jonathan Richman.
RSP: Best bargain…fashion wise?
Kell: BDG denim from Urban Outfitters. Talk about bang for your buck!
RSP: What do you do in your spare time?
Kell: Read, write, draw, run, socialize. Oh, and fantasize about my imaginary rock band.
RSP: What are a few of your vices?
Kell: Diet soda, pop tarts, and cigarettes.
RSP: Favorite things…in general?
Kell: My cat (Chloe), rain, jap-anime, artichokes, MUSIC, the GAA, making out.
RSP: What are you drinking?
Kell: Whiskey diet. Word.
Kell: Any dive bar…the dirtier the better. There had better be a good chance the man sitting next to me is over 60 and missing teeth.
RSP: New or Used?
Kell: Used…rock it till the wheels fall off.
RSP: Most recent purchases?
Kell: A ragged moth eaten cardigan and dirty men’s button down from a thrift store on Fairfax and some super sexy strappy wedges from Free People.
RSP: Favorite magazine?
Kell: Nylon…they get the music/fashion thing.
RSP: What are you reading at the moment?
Kell: A couple of things…“England’s Dreaming: Anarchy, Sex Pistols, Punk Rock, and Beyond” by Jon Savage. I’m also reading “The Witching Hour” by Anne Rice.
RSP: Who’s your favorite model?
Kell: Agnes Deyn.
RSP: Who are your fashion icons?
Kell: Edie Sedgwick, Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, and Sid Vicious.
RSP: Finish this sentence: “I Wish…"
Kell: I lived in Ireland and was in an awesome band. And that my cat could come with.
